World Premiere Of New Musical ‘Reputation' Comes To The Other Palace Studio This November

Posted 27th June 2019

Plus four new Studio events just announced. General on-sale from Mon 1 July, 12pm. 

We’re delighted to be hosting the World Premiere of ‘Reputation‘, a new retro musical by Alick Glass which will run in the Studio from Tue 5 – Thu 14 Nov.

Hollywood in the late 1930’s: a time when the major studios are struggling to feed the insatiable worldwide demand for new talkies. Freddy Larceny is a con artist running a scam to pass-off the work of new writers as his own. He strikes gold when Michelle Grant, an aspiring novelist and student at a Paris language and deportment college, spots his advertisement in the ‘Variety’ movie trade newspaper. Larceny plagiarises her script for a film – credited to him as writer – that then goes on to receive an Oscar nomination.

Reputation’, a compelling story of plagiarism and the female struggle for equality, follows Michelle’s fight for recognition and the recovery of her stolen work, told through 25 original songs and romantic ballads written in the flamboyant style of the best-loved lyricists of the mid 1900’s.

Jeremy Secombe (Sweeney ToddLes Miserables), Maddy Banks (The Band) and Ed Wade (currently in Fiddler on the Roof) head the cast and are joined by Cory PetersonLauren IngramCharlie DennisAshleigh Cavanagh and Eleanor Tollan.
